North Carolina Landscape Contractors' New License and Bond Requirement

As of July 1, 2015, The new NC Landscape Contractors’ Licensing Board (NCLCLB) 
urges all North Carolina landscape professionals to apply for the new Landscape Contractors’
License before the official grandfathering period ends on August 1.

The law requires licenses for landscape professionals who perform landscape contract work valued at $30,000 or higher for a single client, in a single year. But the law’s grandfathering period allows any person who, by December 31, 2014, met the criteria as a current registered landscape contractor, a licensed irrigation contractor; a certified turf professional or an individual who had three years of recognized landscape contracting experience could obtain a license without examination.

Those who qualify under the grandfather provision need to simply submit an application and license fees, and provide a surety bond or irrevocable letter of credit issued by an insured institution to the NCLCLB office. After the grandfathering period ends, landscape professionals will not only have to complete the application process but also pass the multi-section exam to obtain their license.
“As more businesses, municipalities and consumers become aware of the license, it is likely they will choose licensed landscape contractors over non-licensed, regardless of the cost of the project” said Scott Makey, current NCLCLB chairman, and owner of Old Mill Stream Nursery & Landscaping. “Getting a Landscape Contractors’ License now – and maintaining the license with continuing education – keeps landscapers at the top of their field and ready to meet client needs.”

The new license also allows licensed landscape contractors to install landscape projects greater than $30,000 within the definition of landscape contracting, without the requirement of being a licensed general contractor, and establishes licensed landscape contractors as professionals who are responsible and adhere to high standards.
